The summer has been up and down with the sun shining bright one day then rainy the next. Then we were blessed with 2 gloriously sunny weeks at the end of September when autumn has supposedly arrived.
It has been looking a lot more like Autumn within the last week though. Short, wet & dark days are here. So out with the summer clothes and it's time to dig out our coats, scarves, gloves and winter clothes as we know it goes downhill from here.

But I suppose the beginning of fall is not too bad. The leaves turn to red and yellow which adds colour & makes the surrounding picturesque. It is when all the leaves have fallen off the trees that i feel a bit down.... It all looks gloomy and sad and foreign, reminding me I'm thousands of miles away from home.
But never mind, this is the path we've chosen and these are all part of the deal. At least there's the Internet, email, Skype and soon iMessage to help bridge the distance between ourselves and our family. =)
I hope everyone's having a better October and I'm praying that that's it for typhoons for everyone in the Philippines...
